We have a long history of involvement in research in Vietnam, from the supervision of Vietnamese PhD students, to breakthrough research in the fields of education, the environment, childhood poverty, and economic reform.
Vietnam’s population and economy are on the rise. There is a vibrant jobs market and a labour force that is growing by more than one million people every year.* The population continues to benefit from the strong economic development of the past 30 years, and Vietnam is recognised internationally for investment and growth.Vietnam is a networked country, and is ranked 16th in the world for Internet use - it is a young country too; almost 24% of the population is aged under 14.**
For culture, food, and dramatic scenery Vietnam has it all. You will be coming to a country rich with history and culture. From the ancient town of Hoi An, to the ruins of the Cham dynasty, the beaches of central Vietnam, and exploring historical pagodas, Vietnam will surprise you with its diversity. The landscape is stunning too. The vision of 2000 limestone islands rising from the Gulf of Tonkin has astounded millions of visitors to Halong Bay - it’s a spectacular site, and valued as a UNESCO World Heritage area.
